Late Indian President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam once stated, “Great dreams of great dreamers are always transcended”, so rightly stated as to summarize the efforts of Adityaraj Rasikchandra Shah (Founder) – a visionary & dreamer who groomed his vision into a thriving business network engaged in Surface Transportation & Logistics. Initiated as a single milk tanker-driver with a dream set ahead of his path and the right essence of entrepreneurial skills, business discipline and a hardworking attitude, Adityaraj together with his wife Sujata Adityaraj Shah (Director) established Shree Hatkeshwara Group in 1999. This humble beginning announced the birth of one of India’s leading Transport and Logistics Companies that presently operates on a PAN India basis, specializing in the transportation of cement, GGBS, steel and chemical like LPG & propane (also recognized among top-3 transporters of Bharat Petroleum Corporation in Western India).

Standing on the pillars of reliability, capacity, safety, credibility, innovation and employee-friendly environment, Shree Hatkeshwara transports over two million metric tons of cargo per year via in-house (1250+) vehicles, thereby standing as one of the country’s largest fleet owners of bulkers. The company’s services further range from rail rake management, inbound and outbound freight handling at surface, primary & secondary warehousing/redistribution, and third party logistics to surface transportation services at most economical pricing options. In response to its ardent principles of punctuality, sincerity, integrity, hard work and high service standards, Mukta Adityaraj Shah
(second-generation Director of Shree Hatkeshwara Group) states, “We aim to ‘Make Customers Lazy’ by investing a great deal of efforts on the part of our CRM team who always remains in touch with our customers for their planned requirements. We mobilize our fleet so much that their logistics requirements are fulfilled even before they arise”. Moreover, the company’s strength lies in customization and designing service systems to suit customer requirements under the expertise of efficiently qualified experts.

A Meticulous Plan of Services

While the logistics industry is majorly manpower dominated and most times remains under the blind spot of supervision, Shree Hatkeshwara installs GPS trackers in its fleet of vehicles. Aside this, an ERP that is fully integrated with activity plan-outs and meticulous vehicle monitoring systems ensures thorough control and constant updates on the status of the fleet and their services. For an instance, to serve one of its customers supplying LPG & Propane to big industries in the Maharashtra region, Shree Hatkeshwara’s CRM team constantly maintains contact with the procurement teams of these manufacturers and obtains information, basis which the company enables its LPG client to arrange for the supplies. This helps eliminate any shortage of their requirement for LPG and Propane.

Citing another example, Mukta explains how the company helps countering challenges of the cement industry that battles with sudden boosts in demand for cement. “Arranging for dispatches accordingly is a daunting task due to the lack of specialized vehicles to cater to the same. But we hold the apt solutions and specialized vehicles that could seamlessly mediate the transportation of these goods, making the process rapid and adept,” she adds.

Such is the vigour of this ISO 9001:2015 certified company that has successfully established its base in over 12 locations across India. The company has further been awarded for its effective, high-service and time-definite delivery systems while its headship – Mukta proves efficiency by winning the ‘Mahindra Transport Excellence’ award for ‘Best Lady Transport Personality of India’ (2017). Striding the success of these long years of service, Shree Hatkeshwara has launched a branch in the State of Maryland, U.S., planting a total of 54 equipment, while also broadening scope into hauling food-grains and LTL material.
